Estate Planning & Probate

Gresham Estate Planning Lawyers

When it comes to estate planning and probate, you need a lawyer you can trust with your future. At Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law, we represent clients for wills, trusts, and powers of attorney in Gresham, Oregon, and surrounding communities.

Planning for your future and ensuring that your property is distributed appropriately to your loved ones is a big step. We have the legal experience to represent your best interests and plan for the transfer of your personal and financial legacy to those you wish to benefit.

The loss of a loved one is traumatic for the entire family, and settling an estate is the last thing clients want to deal with during a time of grief. From the start, we are empathetic toward our clients and provide all information about the legal process in an easy-to-understand manner. We represent clients in probate and estate planning matters, including:

  • Durable power of attorney — Determine who would make medical and financial decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. These differ from a regular power of attorney that can automatically terminate under these circumstances.
  • Small estate affidavits — For this alternative to probate, estates of $200,000 or less, this timely, private, cost-saving process can be used and avoids the need for a judge or court review.
  • Trusts (excluding living trusts) — A properly planned trust can reduce estate taxes, reduce income taxes, manage assets and protect assets of an estate.
  • Wills — There is no such thing as a simple will. We can prepare wills that stand up to a will contest and remain valid in accordance with Oregon law.

Family legal matters are complex by nature, and estate planning and probate are no exception. The lawyers at Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law can help with these issues.
